: jackson, mississippi. host: good morning. what do you think about the u.s. electoral system? caller: i would rather see just the popular vote. sometimes i do not think it is fair. but the one thing i wanted to call in about, about obama being a christian, one sunday morning about one year ago i was getting ready to worship and he was talking on television. i actually heard him say i am muslim. i was talking to a friend the other day and she said she heard the same thing. so, he is not a christian, he is a muslim. he said it on television. eyes and ears do not deny. host: i am sorry to say, i did that here that, i am looking at articles about that. if the president says he is a christian, does that matter to you? caller: did you hear him say that he was a christian? host: we have aired programs on c-span where he talks about his faith and background, yes. caller: i also heard him say that he is a muslim. besides, the other thing, he is profane to things that god has said in the bible. that are wrong. the gay style, and also abortion. and he is for that. host: do you look at mitt romney'

winfrey an, jesse jackson. you're talking earlier you're talk img this coalition, this new coalition in the democratic party. i think it says something not just to the republican party but perhaps the rest of america. i was talking earlier to mark who is the head of the urban league, he made the point of this coalition is becoming more mature. we talk about this coalition as young voters of women of minorities, african americans and hispanics. he makes a point, not only simply the republican party takes notice but perhaps the rest of america, corporate america could take some notice that america is changing. and perhaps not just the republican party but other organizations need to look at diversity in a different bay because yo --in different way. you see from this audience they won a tough race. they are relieved of this. there seems to be an expectation of this crowd that this is the direction america is going in. there's a level of confidence you see in this crowd in chicago that four years ago was just excitement that they won. the second time it happens people think okay we're o

, the first re-elected president since andrew jackson in 1832 to win a smaller share of the popular vote in the first re-election than he did initially. when you look at it as the margin between him and mitt romney, right now is at 2.4 percentage points which would tie george w. bush in 2004 as the narrowest margin of victory in the popular vote ever for successfully re-elected president. which says something about the durability of the divisions in our country at the time. >> how divided our country really is. i want to show our viewers a map, real quick. so, this is something that you coin back in 2009, if i'm correct. you call it the blue wall. tell us what you mean by that and what does it show and tell us? >> this is another big part of the story. there are now 18 states. the 18 states of the blue wall have voted democratic in every presidential election since 1992. six straight times. that is the most states democrats have won that often ever, since the formation of the modern party system in 1828. what that means unless republicans can break into this, can kind of breach the blue
